Switzerland: IOC president expects 'constructive meeting' on DPRK in Winter Olympics

President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Thomas Bach spoke to the press ahead of a meeting on North Koreas’s (DPRK) participation in the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games, speaking from Lausanne on Saturday. Bach expressed his hopes for a “constructive meeting”, which is to include discussion on the size of the possible DPRK delegation, the events that it can attend and the... Еще possibility of marching together with the South Korea under the common flag, as both Koreas agreed to do on Wednesday. The discussion may be complicated by the fact that North Korea missed a deadline to register their participation in the Olympics. The parties also include the representatives of the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and a delegation from the PyeongCgang 2018 Organising Committee. North Korea has also offered to send a 230-member cheerleading squad to the Olympics as well as 150-member delegation made up of athletes and cheerleaders to the Paralympics in March. North and South Korean officials also discussed fielding a joint women's ice hockey team.
